Yeah, you did pay a lot for Burnett.
Your team looks pretty well rounded. I would be a little worried with Teix, Alou and Drew in the OF. They could be a great OF next season, but if I recall correctly Teix is shifting to full time 1b, Alou probably only has another year or two left in him, and Drew could be amazing or could be hurt.
swarmee's advice would be good for most cases. However, I would pony up the money for some at least decent back up outfielders. Or if you are set on making a cheap bench, try to get deals on some other old or undervalued players like Biggio, Encarnacion, Salmon or Milton Bradley.
You are definately heading on the right track. You got great deals on Aramis, Drew (maybe), Clement, Zambrano and Myers.
